Announcing our You Never Forget Your First contest winners!

Throughout August, we asked Furnish 123 friends and fans to come in to the store and share with us stories of their first and worst furniture purchases on our Wall of Shame and Wall of Conquest.

We received so many awesome entries and were blown away by each entry’s creativity (why should we be surprised, though – you guys rock!).

On August 30, we hosted a champagne and confection Back to School celebration at our store and selected winners from our Wall of Shame/Wall of Conquest. Check out our winners below and see photos and stories of their first or worst furniture purchase.

Courtney won a brand new chest from us to replace this dresser that has definitely seen better days.

Sara is the winner of a new Furnish 123 sofa that we're hoping will replace her 16 year-old Thrift Town purchase 🙂

Tara is also the winner of a new sofa. RIP purple's time for a new one!

Jenny's first furniture purchase is pretty impressive...but now she's a winner of a sparkling new dinette set.

Also, Chef Jocelyn, of SugaPlump Pastries, generously gave away four certificates to party guests for use on her delicious desserts. Below are the winners of SugaPlump Pastries gift certificates and their funny entries.
